I recently met handbag designer Constance Victory at a Swarovski event.* I wasn't surprised to find Constance toting a bag from her own collection, Victoire Focx, that launched March of this year. (The bag was exquisite, btw.)
Crafted with exotic skins, antique chains and Swarovski crystals, Victoire Focx bags are unique -- I dare say timeless. It's like investing in a work of art. Should be, they start at $1,150.
I know I can't be the only accessory junkie to protect a handbag like a newborn -- you know, not taking it out in the rain or putting it down just anywhere, swaddling it... these bags are worthy of that care.
Currently these beauties are made to order, but Constance informed me that several retailers are interested in carrying the line for 2010.
If I had the funds, I'd be rockin' this tomorrow. A girl can dream, can't she?
* Stay tuned to hear about my pleasant and unexpected evening at the Swarovski store.
